Richard Brink has stayed true to this motto ever since setting up his own company over 40 years ago. Founded as a smithery working out of a garage in 1976, Richard Brink GmbH & Co. KG has since established itself as a manufacturer and distributor of high-quality metal goods with its headquarters in the town of Schloss Holte-Stukenbrock, Eastern Westphalia, and sales offices in Austria and the Netherlands.
The range of products offered by the ever expanding brand manufacturer stretches from drainage and dewatering systems made of metal and concrete over to edge profiles and copings through to gravel stops, branch channels, flower bed edging solutions, plant boxes, raised beds, bathroom systems and chimney caps.
The broad selection of functional and decorative elements, all of which boast high-quality design, sets visual accents – whether in green spaces and gardens, in sealed open spaces such as courtyards and streets that need drainage solutions, or to protect building structures both in front of façades and on roofs. Honoured with the Red Dot Award, the designer gratings perfectly highlight the company’s focus on not only functionality and quality but also on the look of its products.
Metal products from the Eastern Westphalian family-run company have been used in countless projects such as the “Kranhäuser” buildings in Cologne, Munich’s “IT town hall”, Expert Zentrale’s office in Hanover besides many other public and private buildings. More and more tradespeople from different backgrounds as well as building contractors, planners and architects are setting great store by made-to-measure products that are “Made in Germany”. These kinds of bespoke and customised metal goods give each construction project a unique finish and underscore the high level of quality.
Whether channels and designer gratings made of stainless steel or hot-dip galvanised steel, edge profiles, parapet coverings, raised beds, plant boxes or flower bed edging solutions – all Richard Brink brand name products serve as individually adaptable solutions that share a love for detail.
